Hey everyone, fresh owner of E17 here.
So I've been playing around with it. Started with AUX from my MP3 player (creative zen x-fi style) to check on double amping, and it provided what I hoped for - boosting volume and bass for Soundmagic PL50 without hiss or anything.
After that I tried optical connection with PS3 and HD555s. Been playing music for about an hour with Linear PCM 44.1 - 176.4 kHz enabled in sound settings and I was impressed. THEN I found a column in music settings called "output frequency" and it was set to 48kHz. So I changed it to 44.1/88.2/176.4 kHz. Then I played a 44.1kHz 320kbps song on HD555s and that moment I heard really unpleasant uneven crackling sound so I unplugged them immediately. E17 was displaying 192K 24bit.
Have I managed to screw something up?
Play some music and use it for a day.
I doubt changing the sampling will actually fry anything if it can at all. Probably an incompatability between something sent.
Play some music for a day and try it out. But yeah, doubt anything happened.
